Barrett the Map Maker. Name.
It may be that not every name in Withycombe is documented as well as it should be as a given name in Period. The given here is one example of that. Lord Laurel is, however, extremely reluctant to start going through all of our standard names sources making lists of exceptions, which lists will never be as widely distributed as the source books are. (Look at the trouble we have getting people to stop using entire books, like Kolatch, and it might give you an idea of the magnitude of the problem as I see it.)Céline Doucerain. Name.

Erik the Runt. Name.
While the sense of "runt" probably intended by the client is clearly post-Period, the meaning dated to 1614 of "an ignorant, uncouth, or uncultivated person" falls within our "grey area".Genevieve LaRousse. Name for Chateau La Rousse.

Submitted under the name Rorik Strongfire, the name was returned previously.Sean Owein MacGrioghair. Badge. [Fieldless] On an ermine spot sable, a crescent argent.
It is Lord Laurel's considered opinion that an ermine spot should be considered a single charge, and so this does not fall under the ban on fieldless charges consisting of disconnected charges.Tanarian Brenaur ferch Owain fab Bran. Name only (see RETURNS for badge).
Though there was some question regarding the construction of Tanarian, several commenters noted that "Arian" is found (as a protheme) in Welsh, and that this construction did not seem unreasonable.THE FOLLOWING SUBMISSIONS HAVE BEEN RETURNED:
Adiantium, Barony of. Badge for Award of Fern and Quill. Argent, in saltire a feather azure and a fern frond vert.
Conflict with Moses von dem Falken (SCA), Argent, a feather azure. There is one CVD for the addition of the frond.Aethelred of Andredesleage. Device. Vert, three dogs dormant in pale, Or.
Conflict with Mandeville (Papworth, p. 172), Vert, three wolves passant in pale Or. There is one CVD for the posture of the canines.Bertrand Lamont. Device. Sable, a cross dovetailed gyronny vert and argent.
Conflict with Stone (Papworth, p. 621) Sable, a cross raguly Or. There is a CVD for the tincture of the cross, but nothing for the difference between raguly and dovetailed.Damon the Grim. Device. Argent two chevronels, one sable and one azure, between three bear's heads erased sable, collared Or.
Conflict with Amborrow (Papworth, p. 432), Argent, a chevron between three bears heads erased sable, muzzled Or. There is one CVD for the addition of the second chevron. There is also the problem that we have no evidence that multi-colored diminutives of ordinaries were ever used in Period.Daria Della Torre. Device. Gules, a chevron inverted between an open book and a pegasus passant argent.
Conflict with Rumlingen (Woodward, p. 138), Gules, a chevron reversed argent. There is only one CVD for the addition of the secondaries. Additionally you should inform the submitter that chevrons, even inverted, always issue from the sides of the shield, not from the corners of the chief.Douglas Cameron of Skye. Device. Per fess vert and azure, a bison's head cabossed argent.
The commentary was very nearly unanimous that there is not a CVD between a bison's head and a bull's head; therefore, this does indeed conflict with Dunston (Papworth, p. 911), Gules, a bull's head cabossed argent. There is only one CVD for the field. (A couple of commenters questioned whether bison were known to Europeans in Period: at the Caidan Heraldic Symposium in 1989, the side trip to the Huntington Library answered this question to Lord Laurel's satisfaction. There was there a Spanish book printed in 1560 which had a very large drawing of what was quite clearly an American bison.)Edward de Wolfe. Device. Azure, a wolf rampant maintaining in its sinister forepaw a battle axe between in cross four roses and in saltire four crescents Or.
Conflict with Donne (Papworth, p. 98), Azure, a wolf salient Or. There is only one CVD for the addition of the secondary charges. Additionally, submissions with annulets or orles of alternating charges have been returned in the past as not being Period style.Elfreda Thorirsdottir. Name.
The genitive form of Thorir is Thoris, so the patronymic should properly be Thorisdottir. Since the submitter allowed no changes whatsoever, we have to return this.Ellisif Arngunnardottir. Device. Or two ravens close respectant sable grasping a crescent gules within an orle sable.
The drawing style of the "ravens" makes them unidentifiable as such. No blazon that we could of would reproduce the emblazon. If the client would consider resubmitting using standard heraldic ravens...Ilya Ivanovich. Device. Vert, an astrolabe Or, charted vert.
As the emblazon makes this effectively "vert, an astrolabe vert, chased Or", this really is color on color. Considered as "vert, an astrolabe Or", it conflicts with Astroll (Papworth, p.10), Azure, an astrolabe Or, with one CVD for the field.Irwyn of Hartwich. Device. Azure, issuant from the battlements of a castle argent a stag's head Or armed argent, in base an eagle displayed wings inverted Or, grasping a hunting perch argent.
Although the LOI and the submitters form specified the field as azure, and some of the charges as being Or, Lord Laurel received an emblazon sheet which was all black and white (with the exception of the blue ball point pen used to fill it in. The device also has the problem of being effectively slot machine heraldry, in that it uses three types of charges in a standard heraldic arrangement (in pale). On a resubmission, the submitter may need to keep in mind MacGilleoun (Papworth, p. 364), Azure, a castle triple towered argent, for conflict.James Adare MacCarthaigh of Derrybawn. Badge. [Fieldless] A compass star elongated to base gyronny of 16 argent and azure.
Under a precedent set by Master William von Schlüssel in the LOAR of March;22, 1988, charges may not be gyronny of more than eight.James the Dragonseeker. Device. Argent, in pale a castle sable and a frog vert spotted Or.
Conflict with The Norfolk and Cambridge District, I Quarter (Military Ordinary #1368), Argent, a castle triple towered sable, and with Campbell of Hallyards (Lyon I, #586), Argent, a castle triple-towered sable, with one CVD in each case for adding the frog.Jason of Rosaria. Badge. [Fieldless] On a compass star Or, the letter J sable
Conflict with Elizabeth Siovhan of Wilshire (SCA), Quarterly sable and vert, on a mullet of eight points Or a natural panther sejant sable. There is one CVD for fieldlessness but it lacks a second for changing the type only of the tertiary.Josse le Bocher. Device. Vert, a hummingbird rising, wings elevated and addorsed, Or.
Conflict with Gravesend (Papworth, p. 305) Vert, a falcon rising holding in the dexter claw a pastoral staff Or. There is a CVD for the change to type of bird but X.2 does not apply here.Katherine of Three Mountains. Name.
Conflict with Katharine of the Mountains; the addition of the adjective is insufficient to clear.Miriam de Xaintrailles. Device. Azure, on a bezant crested a lioness dormant sable.
Wavy crested as a line of division has not been allowed for years. Conflict with Lothian (Papworth, p. 1100), Azure, a sun Or. There is one CVD for the addition of the beast. Additionally the large emblazon had the lion as brown instead of sable.Ofelia della Crusca. Badge. [Fieldless] A frog tergiant vert spotted Or.
Conflict with Fröschl (Woodward, p. 279), Gules, a frog paleways proper. There is only one CVD for fieldlessness.Thomas Schwyzer. Badge. Or a cross-crosslet azure between four roses gules, barbed and seeded proper.
Conflict with Breton (Papworth, p. 614), Or, a cross-crosslet azure. There is one CVD for the addition of the secondaries.Thorvald Macconachie. Device. Gules, a fess enarched argent between in chief three lozenges Or pierced sable, and a lion's head cabossed Or.
Conflict with Austria (Woodward, p. 454), Gules a fess argent. There is one CVD for the addition of the secondaries. There is not a second for the enarching of the fess.Tirion ferch Megan. Name and device. Per pale vert and sable, a horse salient reguardant Or, collared and chained gules.
The lack of a date in the citation in Gruffudd and the fact that Tirion is documented as a placename in Period in Celtic Remains, combined with the lack of any evidence of Tir- as an element in compound names forces us to request Period documentation of Tirion as a given before we can register it. The device conflicts with Rietheim (Siebmacher, plate 30), Argent, a mule rampant Or. There is only one CVD for the field.Tjorkell Kannë. Name change from Thorkell Kane and device. Per chevron inverted enhanced nebuly argent and sable, a griffin displayed counter-changed, fore-membered gules.
The evidence in Geirr Bassi is not very strong for Tjor- as a protheme. However, the most serious problem with the name is that the submitter only documents Kannë from a map of modern Belgium/Luxembourg. Without evidence that (1) it existed in period, and (2) that using an unmodified placename is a standard naming practice for any of the languages involved, this must be returned. The device is not per chevron inverted, it is not a pile (not even a Tudor pile), nor is it a chief triangular. The complex line of division of the "per chevron" counterchanged over the griffin reduces the identifiability of both. The alteration of the forelimbs of the monster further reduces identifiability. Armory has been returned in the past for having a charge overlying a chief and also for counterchanging an animate charge over a complex ordinary. Visually we have both here.Troy Torricson. Device. Checky Or and vert, on a chief argent a brown bear dormant guardant proper.
Conflict with Brockley (Papworth, p. 557), Checky Or and vert, a chief argent. There is one CVD for the addition of the tertiary.William Edwin de Gisors. Device. Quarterly gules and pean, a falcon displayed head to sinister Or, charged with a mullet of four greater and eight lesser points sable.
Conflict with Godard (Papworth, p. 318), Gules on an eagle displayed Or, an annulet for difference sable. There is a CVD for the field but we lack the second for change to type only of the tertiary.William of Wealdsmere. Device. Per chevron purpure and argent in base an anvil sable and on a chief or a hand sable.
Though the LoI stated that the name was submitted with the March LoI from An Tir, we couldn't find it. Secondly, the charge in base on the device does not match any heraldic anvil of which we are aware.ANSTEORRA
Cairenn of CúáRuadh Keep. Name.
Cairenn as spelled here appears to be a unique name, that of the mother of Niall of the Nine Hostages. CuáRuadh Keep does not appear to follow the pattern of using an anglicized Irish name in an English style place name (such would much more likely be something akin to Conroe Keep).Catherine of Wessex. Device. Vert, a unicornate pegasus rampant and on a chief Or two mullets vert.
Conflict with Quinn (Papworth, p. 985), Vert, a pegasus volant and a chief Or, there is one CVD for he addition of the tertiaries. There was some discussion as to whether or not we should continue the long standing ban against unicorn horse hybrids. While the conflict sighted above makes this issue moot, Lord Laurel is interested in everyone's opinion. Should we allow unicornate pegasi in SCA heraldry?ATENVELDT
Arnkatla Solveigardottir. Device. Vert, a sea-ewe naiant argent.
Conflict with Lambert (Papworth, p. 97) Vert, a lamb argent. There is a CVD for changing the lamb to a sea-lamb but the consensus among the commenters was that X.2 does not apply here.Atenveldt, Barony of. Badge for the Performing Arts Guild. Gules, a triple-tiered arch argent.
Conflict with Arches (Papworth, p. 351), Gules, three arches conjoined in fess argent, caps and bases Or. There are no CVDs between these two pieces of armory.Atenveldt, Kingdom of. Change of device for Crown Heir's Arms. Azure, a sun in his splendor Or within a laurel wreath argent and in chief a crown of three greater and two lesser points Or, overall a label argent.
As several commenters noted, Laurel precedent will not allow us to register the Kingdom arms with a label to the heirs of the Crown. See LoAR of 31 October 1984, p. 16, for a fuller discussion of this issue. There is, however, no bar to the heirs of the Crown bearing this device with the permission of the Crown.Ceinwen of Land's End. Badge. Azure, a compass star and a bordure embattled argent.
Conflict with the Barony of Rivenstar (SCA), Azure, a rivenstar argent. There is one CVD for the addition of the bordure, but as was determined more than a year ago, there is no difference between a compass star and a rivenstar.Colin Stafford of Thornwick. Device. Or, a chaplet of thorns between three fleurs-de-lys, points to center, sable.
Conflict with Burosse (Woodward, p. 131), Or, a crown of thorns sable. There is only one CVD for the addition of the secondaries.Daria of Durmast. Device. Argent, a ferret statant to sinister sable and a chevron abased gules.
Conflict with Acton (Papworth, p. 372), Argent, a chevron gules. ThereDalah Rowden of the Misty Forest. Name.
is only one CVD for the addition of the ferret.
Kolatch, as has been said by so many so often for so long and, apparently, so fruitlessly, is not, repeat NOT, an acceptable source for names. No one was able to find documentation for Dalah in any other, more reputable source.Hernando Herodes Montenegro de Mondragon. Badge. Per pale gules and sable, a plate and two bezants, one and two.
Conflict with Colin Korino (SCA), Gyronny of three arrondy azure gules and sable, three bezants one in chief, one in base and one in dexter base. There is only one CVD for the changes to the field. Changing the tincture of the topmost of three charges one and two is insufficient for the second.Hrodgar Bertold von München. Device. Azure, a sword inverted proper between two wings displayed in lure argent.
Conflict with Goudelin (Woodward, p. 123), Azure, a sword argent, hilted Or, with the point in base. There is one CVD for the addition of the secondaries.Sun, Principality of the. Badge for Princess' Guard of the Sun. Azure, two swords in saltire argent surmounted by a fireball proper.
Conflict with Gabb (Papworth, p. 1107) Azure, two swords in saltire points upwards argent hilts Or. There is one CVD for the addition of the overall, unfortunately color on color, charge. As the overall charge breaks tincture, even had there not been a conflict, we would have been forced to return this.ATLANTIA
Dun Carraig, Shire of. Badge. Argent, a single-arch bridge and in base a sea-dog rampant gules.
Conflict with Castellane (Rietstap), Argent, a castle of two towers gules, and with Daman (Papworth, p. 364), Argent, a tower flanked by a wall and two turrets gules. In each case there is one CVD for the addition of the sea-dog, but nothing for the minor differences between bridges and castles.Elizabeth of Rosewood. Device. Azure, on a bend wavy cotised argent, three roses proper.
Conflict with Caines (Papworth, p. 204), Azure, a bend wavy between two cotises argent. There is only one CVD for the addition of the tertiaries. It should be noted that cotises follow the line of the ordinary they flank by default. When they do not (for example, a fess wavy cotised plain), it must be specifically blazoned.Niall Duncan MacFarlane. Device. Checky sable and argent, on a chief azure a saltire argent.
Conflict with St. Lis, Or, on a chief azure, two saltires argent. There is a CVD for the field, but nothing for the change of number only of the tertiary charge(s).CALONTIR
Andrew Wyrmholde. Device. Per chevron Or and argent, in pale a dragon passant azure, breathing flame proper, and a gauntlet aversant sable, all within a bordure vert.
With three types of charge and six tinctures this exceeds the rule of thumb for complexity of XIII.1.a in the Rules for Submissions. This would be ever so much better if the gauntlet and bordure were azure.Cadfael the Mordacious. Name.
We did not receive the form for this name submission in the Laurel packet. (Lords Gold Falcon and Saker, I apologize for not having contacted you about this. I missed the flag from my Administrative Assistant. Not catching it and informing you is my fault, and I am sorry.) The meaning for Mordacious in the OED is dated to 1650 which is at the outer limits of our "grey area". Could you interest the submitter in the documentably Period term "Mordant"?Galen MacDonald. Device. Azure, a chevron throughout argent, overall a mullet of four greater and eight lesser points counterchanged, and in chief two mullets of three points argent.
Similar designs involving a mullet, not overall, but covering a chevron and the lower portion of the field only as this one does have been returned by previous Laurels. This arrangement is not Period style. Additionally, counterchanging complex charges over an ordinary has been cause for return at times in the past. Were the mullet truly overall, that would very likely be the case here.Joscelyn Brigida. Device. Per bend gules and purpure, a sea-cockatrice erect to sinister reguardant, wings addorsed, Or.
Conflict with Brann Morgan Dunmore of Galloway (SCA), [Fieldless] A cockatrice erect to sinister Or, drawing a sword from a scabbard proper. There is a CVD for fieldlessness, but the differences between a cockatrice and a sea-cockatrice are nearly non-existent, consisting primarily of the detailing of the tail.Lachlan Ian MacIntosh. Name.
Conflict with Lachlan MacIan MacIntosh of that Ilk, chief of the clan. When he resubmits a name, the submitter would be well advised to avoid the surname MacIntosh, as the arms of the MacIntosh family feature a lion rampant and a ship with sails furled, and the combination of his now-registered armory with the surname MacIntosh may be considered too allusive to be registrable.Nethaniel Strathearn. Device. Azure, two chevronels cotised Or, in base a tyger passant argent.
Several commenters questioned whether there was any documentation for cotising multiple ordinaries. Without such documentation we are hesitant to introduce yet another post-Period practice into SCA Heraldry.Odille le Sage. Badge for Maison du Chat Combattant. Per pale purpure and gules, a cat herissony guardant, belled argent.
Conflicts with Neale (Papworth, p. 91), Per pale sable and gules a lion statant argent; Sir Guy Astley (Papworth, p. 7), Azure, a lion passant guardant argent; Delamare (Papworth, p. 76), Gules, a lion passant guardant argent, and Norfolk and Cambridge District (Military Ordinary #181), Sable, a lion passant guardant in adumbration, argent. In each case there is a CVD for the field but nothing for the minor changes in posture and minor change in type of the kitty.Viviana Wovenwood. Name and device. Per pale argent and Or fretty vert, in dexter a leaved branch issuant from chief proper and on a chief vert five annulets interlaced in fess Or.
As noted by a number of commenters, the byname appears highly unlikely. No documentation was presented to show that it was constructed on a Period pattern per RfS II.2.LAUREL
The device has several problems. The first is the profound appearance of dimidiated arms, which the addition of the charged chief does not serve to diminish. The device is also right at the very edge of our complexity limits having four types of charge in four tinctures. Given the unusual arrangement and unbalanced design this is simply too much.
Alternate title: Manciple.
This is not an appropriate alternate title for the arts and sciences office, having a meaning much more cognate to that of "quartermaster".MERIDIES
Asa Guthröthsdottir. Device. Argent, a bend sinister azure between a maiden statant to sinister, proper crined Or vested vert holding a sword and a loom sable.
There are two problems with this device. The first is complexity. We have four charges and six tinctures which exceeds the rule of thumb of VIII.1.a. The second problem is the identifiability of the charge in base. It is not a recognizable loom. If it is meant to be an inkle loom, we need documentation for its existence in Period in this form.Fiona O'Mull. Badge for House Calon Draig. Or, a dragon-winged heart gules.
Conflict with Corti (Ordinary to Woodwards, p. 88), Or, a heart gules. There is one CVD only for the addition of the wings.James Galen MacGrew. Device. Per pale gules and sable, on a mullet of eight greater and eight lesser points argent a wolf's head cabossed sable.
Conflict with Anthony the Sinister (SCA), [Fieldless] On a mullet of ten points argent a pheon sable. There is not a CVD between the two mullets, nor does X.4.j.ii apply, so neither is there a CVD for change to type only of the tertiary, leaving us with one CVD only for fielded versus fieldless.Jasper Murtagh. Name for House Dreamer's Keep.
The only documentation for the name supplied by the submitter states that the words dreamer and keep are "common English". We need some evidence that this name is formed in a Period manner or follows the rules of name formation in Period for a placename per RfS II.2.Kieran Forrestier. Name for House Stormfalcon.
Conflict with Great Britain's Falcon King of Arms. Addition of the adjective is not sufficient to clear the conflict.Rory ua Riada. Device. Gyronny arrondy purpure and Or, a woman vested, arms raised, argent.
First of all, as noted by many of the commenters, the primary charge is drawn in an overly modern, non-heraldic style. This alone would quite possibly be sufficient grounds for return. However, it also conflicts with Wirgman (Papworth, p. 953), Azure, a female figure representing justice habited in white holding in the dexter hand a pair of scales and in the sinister a scepter both Or. There is a CVD for the changes to the field but nothing for the minor changes to the primary charge.MIDDLE
David mac Dougal mac Rori. Device. Per fess vert and argent, a melusine counterchanged.
Conflict with Tholosani (Woodward, p. 303), Azure, a siren with two tails and upraised hands proper and da Schio (Woodward, p. 302), Or, a siren proper holding her two tails vert, crowned with an antique crown Or. In each case there is a CVD for the field, but nothing for the difference between Caucasian proper and argent, or the slight change in position of the tails.Jervisa Wainwright. Device. Argent, an antelope salient sable within a bordure vert.
Conflict with Jacinth Aldith the Warwick (SCA), Argent, a yale rampant sable, armed and attired Or, within a bordure compony erminois and vert. There is a CVD for the bordure but antelopes and yales are almost identical. (See for example Dennys' Heraldic Imagination, pages 148 and 165).Maxim Davidovich Krasny. Device. Per bend vert and bendy Or and gules, a mullet Or.
Conflict with US 60th Artillery Regiment (Military Ordinary #1090), Per fess embattled sable and gules in sinister chief a star Or. There is one CVD for the field.OUTLANDS
Dominica Leontyne du Lac. Device. Gyronny ermine and azure, a rose sable, barbed and seeded proper.
Conflict with Wildenfels (Woodward, p. 324, 325), Or, a rose sable. There is only one CVD for the change to the field.Hakon of Jorvik. Device. Gyronny of six arrondy gules and argent.
Conflict with Mudersbach (Woodward), Gyronny indented gules and argent; Acton (Papworth, p. 899), Gyronny of eight argent and gules; Rochausen (Woodward, p. 86), Mal-gironné de six piéces gironnantes de gueules et d'argent; and Berlingham (Papworth, p. 53), Barry of six gules and argent. There is at best a maximum of one CVD from each of these devices for the lines of division of the field.Jago Redbeard. Name and badge for Lightning Fist Camp. [Fieldless] Two lightning bolts cross in saltire vert surmounted by a lantern Or lit gules.
The name does not appear to be formed in a period manner and makes no particular sense, appearing to be simply a collocation of words. The lantern with its transparent "glass" is not done in a period manner. As was noted in the commentary, the College has a long history of disallowing transparent objects.Richenza le Wydu. Device. Or, a horse forceny gules, its neck pierced by an arrow sable within a bordure azure.
Conflict with Renner (Woodward, p. 237), Or, a horse rampant gules; also with Ferrari (yes, that Ferrari), Or, a horse salient within a bordure gules. In each case there is one CVD for the bordure. Additionally, the horse as drawn is forceny, a position not allowed for some years in SCA armory.Thomas Tremayne. Device. Azure, a pale Or between two bears combattant argent.
Conflict with Spedding (Papworth, p. 1005), Azure, a pale Or between two daggers argent hilted and pommeled of the second; and with Uwaine les Avoutres (Fabulous Heraldry, no. 760), Azure, a pale Or. There is but a single CVD for the change to type of secondaries or their addition, respectively.Torcail Ghilleghaolain. Badge. [Fieldless] On a tower sable an annulet of four Stafford knows argent.
There are two problems with the badge. First, it conflicts with Frederick of the West Tower (SCA), Argent, a tower sable on its base a cross patonce voided argent. There is one CVD for fieldlessness but not a second for the change to type only of the tertiary. Second, there is a problem with the identifiability and reproducability of the "annulet of four stafford knots". Similar designs have been returned since at least January 1988.Valentine Michael de La Fère. Badge. [Fieldless] A quill pen and a rapier crossed in saltire and overall a compass star all argent.
There are two problems with this badge. First of all, it is a single group of three dissimilar charges, which violates RFS VIII.1.a. Secondly, the minor axes of the compass star blend into the underlying charges making identifiability seriously problematical.Wulfgar Brandbeorn. Name and badge for House Brandbeorn of Angelstowe. [Fieldless] Four mullets of eight points conjoined in cross gyronny of sixteen argent and Or.
There is a problem with the locative of the household name. The best evidence that we can find would seem to indicate that it should be spelled Anglestowe or perhaps Englestowe. As the submitter did not allow corrections to the spelling, we are having to return this. Though blazoned on the LOI as argent, the mullets were actually gyronny of sixteen argent and Or. Gyronny of sixteen would not be allowed with a metal and a color; in two metals it is even less acceptable. Please inform the submitter that if he resubmits them as argent that this will be a conflict with the Archbishop and See of Sydney, Azure, four mullets of eight points in cross argent.TRIMARIS
Dirk d'Arsenal. Name (See PENDING for device).
The correct form of the byname appears to be "de L'Arsenal". As the submitter did not allow corrections to the spelling or grammar we have to return it.Eduard de le Vert. Name change from holding name of Eduard Vert.
The LoI appeared to say that the client had documented "de le Vert" as an Old French form. However, the handwritten documentation, though showing the use of "de le" and "de la" with several other nouns, presented no documentation that the form "de le Vert" is indeed correct grammar. While the LoI stated that the client would consent to "du Vert", the forms were not marked so as to allow any changes. Hence, we are having to return the name.Elina of Beckenham. Device. Gules, beneath a county coronet, a griffin segreant maintaining in its sinister claw a garden rose, in dexter canton a raven, wings elevated and displayed, Or.
Withdrawn by submitter.Gianetta di Remigio Welser. Badge. [Fieldless] Three gouttes azure in pale, environed of a spider's web argent.
This badge has several problems. First of all, fieldless badges may not use a throughout charge, which is what the spiderweb is. Second, spiderwebs really do not have holes in the center. Third, the gouttes in the center make this a fieldless badge containing four disconnected charges. Fieldless badges containing disconnected charges are no longer allowed.Gunther von Waldherz. Device. Vert, a stag trippant, in base a mullet of seven points, within a bordure argent.
Conflict with Gavin MacFearhius of Athallwood (SCA), Vert, a hurst of two trees, in base a mullet, all within a bordure argent. There is one CVD for hurst versus stag and nothing for a five-pointed mullet versus a seven pointed mullet. X.2 does not apply in this case. The submitter might consider, Vert, a stag trippant argent and a bordure argent mullety of seven points vert.Nicholaa Kelton. Device. Argent, a fret conjoined in saltire with four mice tergiant sable, on a chief vert two pairs of needles crossed in saltire Or.
The large number of suggested reblazons for the primary on this device (including a "fret vermined") is indicative of its non-Period style. We have seen no evidence at all for a fret terminating in a beast of any kind. On any resubmission the client should be aware of the Barony of Altavia, Argent, a fret sable and on a chief vert, a laurel wreath argent, for conflicts.Raphael Caradoc. Device. Gyronny sable and Or, on an escutcheon gules a cat couchant Or.
As blazoned, this is Campbell with an inescutcheon of Eilworth, and is arms of pretense, which are not allowable. Blazoned to more closely match the emblazon as Gules, a cat couchant Or, a bordure gyronny sable and Or, it conflicts with Eilworth (Papworth, p.78), Gules, a lion couchant Or, with one CVD for the addition of the bordure. It also conflicts with Leah Kasmira of Natterhelm (SCA), Gules, a catamount couchant guardant Or, within a bordure vair ancient. There is a CVD for the tincture of the bordure, but X.4.h specifies no difference for head position.Ronan mac a'Chaladair. Badge. Or, three bars wavy gules, overall a thistle vert.
Conflict with Basset (Papworth, p. 39), Or, three bars wavy gules. There is one CVD for the addition of the thistle. (If blazoned as Barry wavy of seven, Or and gules, a thistle vert, it will conflict with Webster (Papworth, p. 859), Argent, a thistle vert flowered gules, with one CVD for the change to the field.Sur la Mer, Shire of. Name and device. Per chevron wavy sable and Or, a sea-swan sable, wings elevated and displayed, environed of a laurel wreath vert, in chief a crescent argent between two estoiles Or.
The grammar of the name is incorrect. The "Shire of on the Sea", which is what this means, does not make sense. Were the submitters willing to drop the "of", we could have registered this. However, the forms were quite clear that the submitters would allow no changes whatsoever. Therefore, we have to return this. As for the device: although this technically just meets the rule of thumb for tinctures and types of charge, the commenters were unanimous in feeling that this is simply too complex to register. If the submitters would consider dropping the crescent, this would be ever so much better.Tanarian Brenaur ferch Owain fab Bran. Badge. Gules, ermined Or, a Celtic uncial T counterchanged.
While badges (and devices too) may have letters on them, they may still not consist of a single letter or abstract symbol. Hence, this has to be returned. Additionally, the counterchanging of the ermine spots over the edges of the charge significantly reduces its identifiability.Tanarian Brenaur ferch Owain fab Bran. Name for Ty de Cymn Mwyaf-Newdd.
While the submitter requested corrections to the grammar of the household name (which would appear to be Ty De Gymru Mwyaf Newydd) the problem is that "Newest South Wales" presupposes a "New South Wales", which is a provably post-period place.Tanarian Brenaur ferch Owain fab Bran. Name for alternate persona of Medeni ferch Tanarian.
There are two problems with this name. First, it was submitted last time as the name of a dog. It was noted in the return then that we do not register names and armory for non-humans. Second, Medeni was submitted last time as the submitter's mundane given name; as the forms note, this submitter's legal given name is Lisa. Medeni was not documented and thus cannot be registered.Trimaris, Kingdom of. Name for Order of the Black Widow.
The name is in conflict with the already registered Widow's Abbey, with the only real change being the addition of the adjective. However, a more serious problem is that registration would imply the acceptance by the Society of an order, membership in which is based on gender. If we are not willing to accept an order all of whose members could only be male, we should not give our "stamp of approval" to one whose members can only be female.Trimaris, Kingdom of. Name for Order of the Herauldes Tressure.
Conflict with the Tressure Pursuivant registered to the Kingdom of Ansteorra.Trimaris, Kingdom of. Name for Order of the Trimarian Sword.
Conflict with the Royal Order of the Sword (Sweden) and with the Knights of the Sword as listed in the old Armorial and Ordinary. Addition of the adjective Trimarian is insufficient.THE FOLLOWING SUBMISSIONS HAVE BEEN PENDED UNTIL THE NOVEMBER LAUREL MEETING:
Stefan von Lübbeke. Name and device. Per fess embattled azure and argent masoned sable, in dexter chief on a mullet of eight points Or an eagle's head erased and sinister facing gules.
The blazon in the LoI was very confusing. Some commenters thought that the wall was azure masoned argent. This is pended so that it can be properly checked for conflict.TRIMARIS
Dirk d'Arsenal. Device. Pean, a wolf rampant maintaining an open book argent, bound gules, and a dagger inverted proper, within a bordure Or.
The LoI dropped the tincture of the wolf, the book, and the dagger. This is being pended so that it can be properly researched.Gimel of Glymmerholde. Device. Per pall inverted arrondy gules, sable and argent, in chief three daggers proper and in base a cup azure.
The LoI dropped a tincture. The daggers are actually proper, not azure (which would be color on color).
